Apple Rumor Roundup: Should You Get This Year’s iPhone?
We’ve been following all the rumors leading up to next week’s Apple event for well over a year now. So, suffice it to say, we’re pretty excited about everything that Apple will be revealing — especially the new iPhones. However, rumors are already swirling about the iPhones Apple is expected to release next year, which got us thinking: Should we even be that excited for the big reveal next week? Well, yes… and no. Here’s why:
Yes! If the rumors are true, there is going to be a ton more storage available on the iPhone 7. Other rumored features include a dual-lens camera, longer battery life, complete removal of the headphone jack, super fast charging capabilities and the option of three different sizes. The phone will also probably come in five colors, including brand-new Glossy Black.
No! The 10th anniversary iPhone is rumored to be BIG. Some predict that next year’s iPhone will have iris scanning to unlock your phone. The “iPhone 8” could also have wireless charging and a wraparound, larger screen. Apple may even choose to completely remove the home button in favor of a touch-sensitive casing.
Basically: If you like the phone you’ve got now but just want it to do a bit more, this could be your year. Otherwise, the big new innovations will probably take another year to arrive. But, either way, we won’t know exactly whether or not it’s prudent to upgrade until Apple unveils its new device next week. Stay tuned, and we’ll be sure to let you know our final consensus.
Will you wait another year for a new iPhone? Let us know @BritandCo!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
